Just replaced the mains cable, which looked very dodgy.

Will have an official switching on ceremony later! !!UHOH!!

This was always a favourite of mine, with the original hopper payout making it closer to the original US machines. The upside is that the wiring should be fairly straight. Most parts are connected to each other electrically, so removing anything will stop operation, so there could be a fault on any part that stops a boot up. You may be lucky and find a blown fuse. The prime suspects after the fuse would be the end of stroke switch on the back of the damper, which if not fully restored would cause your fault, or any one of the plug pins either dirty, bent, broken or pushed back into the plastic. The pins can be pulled back out and superglued in place. Contacts on the hopper unit could also be suspect. Rough handling may be the cause, judging by the damage to the case. :dammit: Treat the plugs with great care as they are impossible to buy, unless off a scrap machine, oh, and watch for 240v appearing just about anywhere :shock:

Interesting machine in that the Mark 1 version, the true Money Honey, was the machine that changed the one arm bandit world and sounded the death bell for the Hi-Top and the Jennings Gov type machine. It's the first real electro-mechanical.

Watch out for signs that say '110v' - they often don't clearly say there is 220v waiting to bite. It's a real challenge to get at the lights inside the lower door on the old ones; I dont know about this model. Some models had a delicate revolving wheel inside the door that caused a color change as it rotated. If there is, it will almost certainly be dead now and will look great if you can get it going again.
